The Elder Scrolls Online is about to dump a super lore-heavy expansion on us -- Summerset. It takes us back to the Summerset Isles, a place that hasn't been touched in the games since the very first entry -- Arena -- in 1994. While it's not quite as powerful of a launch as say, the iconic Morrowind, it's still a pretty impactful zone if you're an Elder Scrolls fan.



I've been playing the PTS edition for roughly a week, and although I definitely need to see more of the narrative play out before I can make a judgment on the story, I'm sufficiently impressed by the zone. ZeniMax Online Studios has done a great job of capturing the raw beauty and danger of Tamriel. It's larger than Morrowind, which is a plus in an MMO centered around exploration, but still bite-sized enough to the point where it doesn't feel like most of the areas are filler.


All of the ancillary elements, from the concept art in the loading screens to the soundtrack, are phenomenally done. As far as the in-game art goes I'm constantly reminded of the work in possibly the best Elder Scrolls expansion to date, Shivering Isles, and Summerset's constant sense of wonder lends itself well to some of the busywork involved in running from place to place.


The Elder Scrolls Online really deserves some sort of "most improved" award. It had a lot of issues at launch but many content-gates were removed shortly after, and the move to free-to-play has only helped it, especially on consoles. It's not a perfect system but the concept of starting wherever you want and exploring your favorite zones is a big draw when it comes to the rich world of Elder Scrolls.
